Re: Strongman on CBC Marketplace

Haha. It did own me for a bit...probably 3-4 minutes. My excuse is that it was over 40 degrees with the humidex and was probably the 15th or 20th package I had opened :p . The giant heat-sealed package didn't help either. It was a fun experience though...I would definitely do it again if given the c...

Re: Strongman on CBC Marketplace

Grant...as far as I can tell they put the episodes up on their page pretty quickly. The commercial is on there now at http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/ . I'll definitely be recording it though.

Strongman on CBC Marketplace

Marketplace on CBC is doing an episode dedicated to frustrating, hard-to-open, and wasteful packages. Back in the summer they were looking for a Strongman to be a part of it, and contacted me about it. "Canadian strongman Adam Witzel can lift a tree trunk or an SUV... but has he met his match in thi...

Re: Events for 2014 OSM- What Are Your Thoughts

IMO OSM is the flagship contest for ON so there should be ample opportunity to break OSM records. So max log is essential, maybe match the heaviest farmers and give guys a chance to beat that time, etc. This could also help from a promotional aspect and the contest could be billed as the crowd's ch...

Re: 2013 Oktoberfest Bavarian Strongman Challenge

If anyone's on the fence about competing due to lack of a sponsor hotel, I Have some extra space (and two pull-put beds) at my house, and am a pretty short drive to the contest venue. Shoot me a PM, e-mail, or facebook message to discuss.

Re: Arnprior Fair 2013

That's very unfortunate. This is the third show I'm aware of this year that has been cancelled due to lack of interest from athletes, two of which I had signed up and paid for. C'mon guys. Not only are the promoters getting screwed, but even the guys who legitimately want to compete are losing oppor...

Re: Arnprior Fair 2013

Lance is right, this was definitely the heaviest comp I've done. I won't be able to make it this year Paul...got a family reunion to go to. Missed the last one due to a strongman competition, and missed the other family's reunion to something strongman related, so I'm kind of obligated to go this ye...

Re: 2013 Kings of Strength!!!!!

very cool. Would be pretty cool to have one after Oktoberfest to break up a bit of the monotony of winter training. Still excited for the Demo on Monday though!

Re: Barrie Contest May 12th - Men and Women

Here's my video from the competition...everything but farmer's walk P0kYnM9ND84 Great competition, very fast-paced. I was very impressed with the female competitors, and am especially proud of my wife Beckie for stepping up and competing and hitting PR's in pretty much every event. It was definitely...
